    Lowering questions

    Looking at the eibach pro lowering springs for my goat. What all needs to be considered before picking these up? The drop the front an inch and the back .8 of an inch. Are new shocks needed, and what would install look like?

    Consider going somewhere else to get springs..
    Check the history on them things as lots have had sacking problems including yours truly.
    Talk to Sam Strano.

    For one inch and 0.8 inch I'd think new shocks wouldn't be absolutely necessary but we always err on the side of new shocks as well as shocks designed for that particular spring, be it height related or rate related.

    I checked Google images and found a ton of GTO's with that Pro Kit. Looks pretty sharp.

    Spring sag happens over time, like a year or two.
    Progressive springs are notorious for it when they have not been processed correctly which could be temper, steel quality for application, etc.

    This is for a GTO. Sam doesn't list any GTO stuff on his page and doesn't make springs for them.
    And shocks are a must if you are lowering.

    Pedders seems to be the preferred brand of spring for the GTO's. And as much as I hate to say it I think BMR springs are well reviewed for the GTO.
